# Electric Power

Power \(\:(P)\:\) is the rate of doing work and is measured by the amount of foot pounds of work done in a particular unit of time. A horsepower is a measure of power.

## Electric Power (Watt) formulas

\(\large{ Watts = \frac{Volts^2}{Ohms} = P = \frac{V^2}{R} }\) | |

\(\large{ Watts = Volts^2 \; Ohms = P = V^2 \; R }\) | |

\(\large{ Watts = Volts \; Amps = P = V \; I }\) | |

\(\large{ W = \frac{ m \; g \; h }{ t } }\) | (horsepower) |

### Where:

\(\large{ P }\) = power

\(\large{ I }\) = current

\(\large{ h }\) = height

\(\large{ m }\) = mass

\(\large{ R }\) = resistance

\(\large{ g }\) = gravitational constant

\(\large{ V }\) = volt
